Have your say

PEOPLE in Portsmouth have been told to call 999 if they feel threatened by callers over the Halloween period.

In a message on its website, Hampshire Constabulary told residents they do not have to open the door if they don’t know who is calling.

People should look through a spyhole or window before opening the door if they are unsure, and have a door chain in place if they do answer.

The message added: ‘If you feel threatened in your home, call 999.’
